This new video from TheGenealogist explains how street and trade directories can be used to track your ancestors between the ten-yearly censuses, discovering where they lived and worked and who their neighbours were.

As TheGenealogist's Mark Bailey explains, many directories were published yearly and exist for the years before and after the census, making them an invaluable resource.
